    Samsung Galaxy s2 Skyrocket won't mount as device with removable storage

    I have the Samsung Galaxy s2 Skyrocket, and since I'm sick of Apple being proprietary, I decided to stop using my iPod and put music on my phone instead. The other day, I had a problem where my phone was stuck in "dock mode," where the pin in the micro usb port got a little bent out of place, but i fixed that problem by bending it back into place with a paper clip. Now, when I try to plug my phone into my computer it only charges, it doesn't come up with an option to hook it up to the computer as a hard drive, or as a device with removable storage. I left my phone charger at RPI, college, so I have no way of getting back until the end of January, and I thought maybe the fact that I wasn't using my actual charger was the problem it isn't hooking up. Any solutions? Thank you in advance!

    Buy a new charger - they're not terribly expensive.

    Sounds like you need a new data cable. As Ultra said, they're not very expensive. Samsung phones are very picky about the kind of cables you use, so make sure you get an OEM Samsung cable. I've gotten multiple cables online from Accessory Geeks. Very reasonable.

    I would have to agree. Try and get yourself a Samsung (or Motorola, as they are high quality as well) cable.
